Designing and Managing Classroom Environments for Children and Youth with Special Needs (Grades K and Up)

EDUC 605
This course is designed to help teachers create classroom environments that will meet the needs of all children, including those with learning and/or behavioral problems. Addressing the concerns of both general and special education teachers, it incorporates presentations, role-playing, discussions, analyses of filmstrips and videotapes and informal diagnostic procedures. Teachers examine the complexities of their day-to-day responsibilities and concerns, including classroom management, styles of discipline, and the interplay between curricula, rules, routines, expectations, and children's behavior.
